Yogurt obsession. It’s a family tradition.

When you grow up in a Greek family, yogurt is just a way of life. In fact, when we’re not making at work, we’re making it at home in small handmade batches. We might even hold friendly competitions to see who does it best. Parents, uncles, grandparents and cousins vie to see who has the right blend of creamy, sweet and tart. Winner holds the bragging rights. Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt is the yummy, fresh and pure outcome of a really yogurt-obsessed family. It’s our delicious family tradition, and we thought it was time to share.

Fasten Your Seatbelts.

Father and son team Con and Alex were making traditional Greek yogurt in Australia when Yvonne, an American flight attendant dropped in for a taste. After one spoonful, she was hooked. She flew home and raved to her husband, Bob, and they hatched a plan.

It took nearly ten years (and tens of thousands of miles of travel, coordination and logistics), but eventually, Con and Alex moved to Seattle to team up with Yvonne and Bob. The result was a brand-new yogurt company that combined our traditional Greek yogurt recipe and handcrafted process with local ingredients and distinctly Pacific Northwest flavors.

Ellenos opened its first yogurt bar in Pike Place Market in 2013, and we’ve been converting people to our obsession ever since, one delicious scoop at a time.
